BJyttovffl* (Art.) Courtar Km - Monday, July 11, MM - Pi* Nit*. All-Star Forecast: 105 Degrees AL Slightly Embarrassed By JACK HAND ST. LOWS (AP) -The em- bairasHd American League winner of ony one of the last nine All-Star baseball games, is ready to go all out Tuesday against the favored National League's impressive array. The National Leaguers have been taking blows for winning both the World Series and the All-Star Game in each of tie last three years. Overcoming a 12-4 edge in the Ail-Star series once completely dominated by the American League, Willie Mays'and Co. have taken the lead 1847-1, Sain Mele, the Minnesota skipper who will boss the American L«ague, sounded the word before he left home. "I'll us?., my. eight starters all the way if it will help us win," said Mele. "I'm going to win this one. We'll play to win." Walter Alston of the Los Angeles Dodgers can be counted upon to give his. sluggers a similiar message. Five of the l« pitchers were used Sunday but the only starters were Steve Barber of Baltimore on the American side and Jim Bunning of Philadelphia on the National side. Pete'Richert of .Washington, Claude Raymond of Houston and Phil Regan of the Los Angeles Dodgers were used in relief. Regan was a late addition to the staff. He was named by Alston to take the place of Bob iiiiniiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniii Twinbill Here Two Tri-County Senior Pony League baseball games are carded at Light Brigade Field tonight: Blythevffle Colts vs. Monette at 6; and Blytheville: Mustangs..'• vs. Blytheville Air Force Base at 8. Leachville, with just one loss, leads the league. Mustangs and Colts have bowed three times each. 'iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiumiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiir FRIEND: I'BUSH STUFF'' Squeeze Burns Bob By ED SCHULER JR. Associated Press Sports Writer Veteran pitcher Bob Friend knows about pressure. But that extra squeeze put on by the Pittsburgh Pirates was just too much. Friend, an ex-Pirate, became angry Sunday, when the Pirates, leading by five runs in the eighth inning en route to a 94 victory over the New York Mets, tried to squeeze in another run. It backfired, but that didn't pacify Friend. As he was leaving the field, Friend glared at the Pittsburgh dugout and shouted, "That's bush stuff, trying a squeeze when you're five runs ahead." Pirates Manager Harry Walker shouted back, and he and Friend started toward each other but were restrained. * * * After the game. Walker said, Whenever the club I'm playing gives up and quits, that's when I intend to stop trying to score runs. Baseball is played to win, and that's all I have to say." The Cincinnati Reds helped Manager Don Heffner pass an acid test by ending an 11-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Following the victory, the 55- year-old Heffner chewed two tablets which absorb stomach acid and said, 'My stomach's been jumping for 55 years. But this (the slump) hasn't helped any." The Cincinnati victory enabled second-place Pittsburgh to close to within one game of the Giants in the National League. Atlanta edged Lot Angeles 20, the Chicago Cubs blasted Philadelphia 10-2 and Houston nipped St. Louis 5-0 in other National League games. * * * The Pirates broke a M tie with their five-run eighth, Roberto Clemente's single driving in the go-ahead run. After all the runs had scored, Friend relieved Bob Shaw. With a runner on third and two strikes on the batter, EIRoy Face, the Pirates' pitcher, tried the squeeze, but Cincinnati. The Reds built a 2-0 Face missed the ball for a strike out and the runner was caught off third. Milt Pappas pitched out of numerous jams in winning for Cincinnati; The Reds built a 2-0 lead on run-scoring singles by Vada Pinson and Tony Perez before the Giants narrowed it on Ozzie Virgil's l; homer in the ninth. * * Lemaster pitched Denny five-hitter and Frank Boiling and Woody Woodward singled home runs in the fifth inning for Atlanta's victory over the Dodg- rs. Ernie Banks was the big man in the Cubs' triumph over Philadelphia, driving in five runs with three hits. Southpaw Dick Ellsworth picked up his fifth victory against 12 defeats, with Jim Bunning taking the loss. Rusty Staub hit a pair of homers, the second one with a man on in Houston's three-run eighth, as the Astros beat the Cardinals in 104-degree weather at St. Louis. Gibson when the St. Louis Cardinal ace came up with a sore elbow. Sam McDowell of Cleve- attd, who lasted lets than an piling Sunday, also bowed out with a sore arm and was replaced by teammate Sonny Siebert. . Sandy Koufax of the Dodgers, the majors' top winner with a 15-4 record, worked Saturday. So did Gaylord Perry of San Francisco and Billy McCool of Cincinnati. Juan Marichal of San Francisco has rested since pitching a three-hitter for his 14th victory Friday. Bob Veale of Pittsburgh has not pitched since Thursday. Three American League starters worked Saturday — Gary Bell Of Cleveland, Catfish Hunter of Kansas City and Denny McLain of Detroit, the league's big winner with a 13-4 record. Jim Kaat of Minnesota and Mel Stottlemyre of New York were used Friday. Alston, who had been undecided about coming to the game due to the illness of his mother, is expected to be on hand. If he cannot make it, Herman Franks of the league-leading San Francisco Giants will take his place. Injuries struck the National League starting line-up forcing Alston to replace second base- rnan Joe Morgan of Houston with switch-hitting Jim Lefebvre of his Dodger club. Morgan suffered a broken knee cap a week ago. Ron Santo, the Chicago Cubs" third baseman, retained his starting job, wearing a special face guard to protect his injured cheekbone. The Nationals have the majors' top home run hitter- in Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves in the outfield along with marvelous Willie Mays of the San Francisco Giants and Roberto Clemente of Pittsburgh. Willie McCovey of San Francisco at first base, Lefebure at second, Leo Cardenas of Cincinnati at short, Santo at third and Joe Torre of Atlanta as catcher completed the power-packed starting line-up. Frank Robinson of Baltimore, anxious to show the Nationals that Cincinnati made a mistake in trading him, will team with Detroit's AI Kaline and Minnesota's Tony Oliva in the American outfield. Rookie George Scott of Boston at first base, Bobby Knoop of California at second, Dick McAuliffe of Detroit at short, Brooks Robinson of Baltimore at third and Bill Freehan of Detroit as catcher are the other starters. Brooks Robinson's 70 runs batted in top the majors and Frank Robinson and Kaline are tied for the league home run lead with 21. The game will be carried on ing at 12 noon, CST. Players are from all points stragling in on makeshift schedules due to the airplane strike. Special planes are ready if unexpected emergencies develop. St. Louis expects a capacity crowd of close to 50,000 in new Busch Memorial Stadium and the weather man promises to make it hot. Would you believe 105? «r ' BOSOX W/N STH STRAIGHT DOT GERMAIN Boss Buys the Suds By RON RAPOPORT Associated Press Sports Writer George Smith was tired, Billy Herman was 'sorry and Tom Yawkey was buying. The beer was on the house in the Boston dressing room Sunday after Smith, the Red Sox second baseman, who is prized mainly for his fielding, hit a grand-slam home run in the bottom of the 10th inning to give last-place Boston a 10-6 win over Chicago, a sweep of a doubleheader and its fifth straight victory. . .. ' Boston owner Yawkey phoned Herman, the club's manager, in the dressing room after the game .and announced that the suds were on him. Normally, the players have to buy their own. But all Smith was interested in was a little sleep. 'It was not only a long day," said Smith, "it .was a long week. Four doubleheaders* in a week are rough. However;'it doesn't bother you too much when you win." Herman allowed that the club might need a rest at that, but said, "I'm sorry that the Ail- Star Game-break comes at this time. I'd like to keep on playing every day now." Boston, which has won nine of its last 10 games, is within 1% games of escaping the league's cellar. The New York Yankees, who dropped a pair to Washington, are making like a potential last-place club. The Yanks lost to the Senators 3-2 and 9-2, while Minnesota beat Detroit 4-2, California shut out Baltimore 4-0, and Kansas City knocked off Cleveland twice 4-1 and 5-3. Smith, who lined a 3-1 pitch off Chicago reliever Juan Pizarro for his seventh homer this season, said, 'I was looking for the fast ball, figuring it was the only thing he could throw me in such a situation. It was inside, just above the belt and I knew it was gone as soon as I connected. It sure felt good.". Yankee Manager Ralph Houk. who had hoped to have the team at .500 by the All-Star break, FIRST MAJOR WIN Dot On Top COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Dot Germain of Blytheville won her first major golf trophy Sunday afternoon when she sank a 3%-foot putt on the 35th hole to capture the Broadmoor Women's Golf Tournament. The 19-year-old girl defeated Kathy Ahern of Dallas, the 19*5 Texas state championship, 1-up in the scheduled 36-hole finals. In Miss Germain's recent outings, she was a quarterflnal- 1st in the Trans-Mississippi Women's Amateur at Fort Smith, and was medalist and consolation flight winner In the Intercollegiate at Columbus, Ohio. Mrs. John Germain, her mother, had previously won an an Intercollegiate championship but now Dot is one up on Mom: Mrs. Germain could only reach the runnerup level in her quest some years ago in the Broadmoor. Miss Germain's match with Miss Ahern was close all afternoon with neither golfer managing more than a 2-up advantage at any time. They both turned in par 74s on the first nine. Both girls felt they played "kind of draggy" on the last 19. "We sort of held each other up," cracked Dot. Miss Germain plans to enter the Western Amateur next Monday near Chicago. watched the Yanks fall 12 frames behind that mark and 20% games behind the league- leading Orioles. Homers by Ed Brtakman and Bob Savarine gave Washington the victory margin in the first same, while blasts by Willie Kirkland. and Ed Brinkman powered the Sen ators hi the second game. Two-run homers by Harmon Killebrew and Don Mincher got the Twins past second-place Detroit despite Al Kaline's fourth round-tripper of the series. It was Kaline's 21st homer of the year, tying Baltimore's Frank Robinson for the league lead. Good Show by Doug - Even If He Didnt Win British By RONALD THOMPSON MUIRFIELD, Scotland (AP) — .The man with the shortest swing left the longest memory after the British Open Golf Championship — even though he was a loser. Doug Sanders of Ojai, Calif., one of the most colorful characters in the game, was shot by three inches with a putt on the home would green Saturday that have tied the winning score of 282 shot by champion Jack Nicklaus, the Golden Bear from Columbus, Ohio. If that putt had gone in, Sanders and Nicklaus would have Gun Show Mississippi County Gun Club's gun show is scheduled today at Goff Hotel, starting at 2 o'clock. 'The ' club; is to meet tonight at 7:30. Both the show and meeting are open to the public. ; played off over 18 holes for the title Sunday — and anything could have happened. But, speculation aside, Sanders caught the imagination of the knowledgeable Scottish golf fans. His 71-70-72-70-283 was the most, consistent golf shot on the 72-hoIe test over the difficult Muirfield links. It wasn't only consistent, it was entertaining and it gave the golf addicts something to talk about until the next British Open. Sanders' wrist action powers the ball more than 300 yards off the tee despite his short back- swing. * * * How did he learn to do it that way? "Well," said Sanders, who has a wisecrack for every occasion, "I began playing golf with my employer's clubs. "He might have come back any minute, so I didn't have tune to swing the club very far. : " : ' Sanders tied for second place along with Dave Thomas of Wales.
